Youth and  suicide prevention

youth suicide


A forum where facts and myths about suicide are brought to light.

The River Community Church, in conjunction with the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention and Didi Hirsch, will be hosting a Student-Oriented Suicide Prevention Seminar. This seminar will focus on youth, because suicide is the second leading cause of death for ages 10-24. More teenagers and young adults die from suicide than from cancer, heart disease, AIDS, birth defects, stroke, pneumonia, influenza, and chronic lung disease, combined.

It will also provide a forum where facts and myths about suicide are brought to light, based on a true story experience and the impact on loved ones. Tips on how to prevent suicide and what you can do for those you love plus resources for suicide prevention will also be discussed and provided.

This seminar will be held at The River Community Church (TRC) on Sunday, August 23,  at 1 p.m. in the main auditorium at 889 E. Santa Clara St.

TRC’s vision is to partner with others to help them enhance their quality of life and this includes helping families deal with issues such as these.

The River Community Church is known for being “Your partners in life.” For more information about The River Community Church, please visit their website at or call the church office at  648-7955.
